Espresso Machine

I am going to purchase an espresso machine for my husband as a gift, my budget is $700. I have read the reviews here but wanted to get an up-to-date opinion since technology is constantly changing.

I am looking at the Rancilio Silva and the Gaggia Classic but am open to any suggestions.

We don't know much about making espresso but do know something about drinking good espresso and am hoping to be able to make a good shot given my budget.

Thank you!
